ISO 9001:2015 Transition Training

Course Full. Please see notes below for registration.

The new version of the ISO 9001 Standard features an altered structure and new requirements – including the concept of risk-based thinking – to reflect how increased globalization has changed the way business is done. This course is for individuals who are already familiar with the ISO 9001:2008 Standard and are involved in transitioning their company to ISO 9001:2015, including planning, implementation and supervisory activities. It is also ideal for auditors who will be auditing to the new standard.

The course covers:

  • Changes to the standard and their impact on a company’s Quality Management System (QMS) and Internal Audit Program
  • The Annex SL framework (organizational context, leadership, planning and support)
  • Methods for meeting and auditing new requirements, including risk management and organizational knowledge
  • The business approach on how to use your ISO 9001-based QMS to benefit the performance of the company

Participants will be able to identify gaps in their company’s current QMS and be prepared to plan the transition to the ISO 9001:2015 revision.

Prerequisite: Substantial knowledge of ISO 9001:2008 and key principles of a QMS
